      [Letter written from Rossville, Vermilion Co., IL from Alexander Sackett to his father Dr. Samuel Sackett in Fayette Co., PA. He mentions his brother David F. Sackett, his Uncles Aaron and Siris (Cyrus) Sackett.]
      ------
      Rossville February th23, 1811

      Dear parents concieus of my
      Neglect to your request of frequent writing I promise
      with as firm and Stead fast resolution to perform the
      Same to never sever from my duty to my parents
      While it shall please God to lend me health and
      Strength. the use and Exercise of my reason and I am
      not incapacitated from writing. I last summer had an
      attack of the Summer Epidemic which no doubt you
      have heard by letter or other ways which unfit me for
      __eaness but thanks be to God who restored my health
      (torn) his Continued Mercies My practice was concderable
      considering my indisposition & was greatly abated by it
      but since I have been Very Much drove at times the
      Windter is the healthiest Season in this Country. I find it
      difficult obtaining Medicines on account of the Scearcity
      of Cash. David and the family was well when they
      left this place for Whitewater in the Territory on the
      15 __________ out he has got a Son whose name is Samuel
      arising four months old. his Situation is good is good
      foor the practice there are no Dr.s nearer than
      this place. Our legislature pass an
      Edict for the regulation of the practice of
      Phisic as there are none to practice Except they
      Obtain Licene from three Seneors appoointed
      by law. And those who now Practice cannot

      page 2

      Obtain Licence without a Surtificate
      for three Years Study and practice. Now I
      Consider my self in a good Situation for practice
      And Confident that I have Studied as Much and
      more than three years but how to obtain a
      Surtificate I knnow not. if you can obtain a Surtificate
      which you mind not hesitate in giving yourself.
      at least I think you may obtain one for the
      Specified time without Much dificulty which
      if you cant I must fall to the Ground. I want
      it by the first day of June as the Seneors are
      to meet that day to Examine & give licences
      to those who have there Surtificates to show. do it if you
      can send it on:
      I dont recollect for hearing from you
      since the return of Lot Abraham. Neither do I
      recollect when David wrote you last but not since
      Esq. Griffith left this place I believe
      Uncle Aaron and family are
      well as was Uncle Siris the last time I heard from
      them. I must conclude by subscribing Myself
      your ever dutifull Son Alex Sackett

      Samuel Sackett

      NB Write and let me know thus I may
      that I may determine what steps to take.

      In "The Sacketts of America"; page 160, Weygant says that Alexander Sackett,
      M. D. died in the year 1814.
      ------
      Information sent to me by Laurie Young has the following:

      "A Butler Co. Will received August 2, 1813 pg. 75;
      Alexander Sackett, will July 2, 1813. Brother Samuel, sisters Mary, Ann,
      Lydia, and Sarah Sackett. Executor Samuel Blair. Witnesses; Rhoda
      Stanburrough, John Porter, John D. Keeth. [From Ohio Records and Pioneer
      Families; Volume XI No. IV Pg. 207]"
      ------
      The July 2, 1813 date of the will and the August 2, 1813 date for it being presented for probate would place his death between those two dates. The statement by Jordan, below also indicates 1813 as the year of his death. Alexander was born 10 Jan 1786 and if his age at death was 27 yrs., then he died in 1813. - [Thurmon King]
      ------
      In Jordan's "Genealogical and Presonal History of Fayette County
      Pennsylvania", Vol. II pg. 343, it says: "Alexander, born in Pennsylvania,
      studied medicine with his father and served as surgeion in the war of 1812.
      He was attached to General Harrison's command and died of fever at Fort
      Meigs, aged twenty-seven years."
